BRADFORD City believe that their chances of triumphing at the Fraser Eagle Stadium tomorrow afternoon (Saturday) when they take on Accrington Stanley are higher than ever.

Bradford striker Michael Boulding told the Yorkshire Evening Post (what a fantastically truthful paper with fantastic writers… okay joking aside), that the game will be like a home match to the City players on Saturday.

Last season at the Fraser Eagle Stadium, Bradford managed a 2-0 victory which made up in a way for the 3-0 pasting handed out to them last October by the Reds at their home stadium which changes names every five minutes.

Boulding said: ‘It’s not a very big ground and they haven’t got a lot of support and we should take a load of fans and turn it into a bit of a home game.

‘To be honest, the support is immense here and the loyalty and support they give us deserving something good to happen to this club.’

Last season’s clash in East Lancashire saw a crowd of 2,898 enter through the turnstiles, just over half of which were Bradford followers and with Stanley’s results not looking too strong so far, it could be yet another repeat performance both on and off the field.

Boulding added: ‘Accrington are a big, strong and physical team, a bit like Shrewsbury.

‘They are good at set-plays and have got a really good striker in (Paul) Mullin, who is very good in the air.

‘He can also finish and the lads at the back will have to be aware of him.

‘As I’ve often said, anyone can beat anyone in this division and we’ve got to go into every game with the mentality that it’s going to be a battle.’
